Vista 3 by Chroma-Q Lighting Control Makes Impressive UK Debut at Silverstone’s BRDC British Grand Prix Celebrations

UK – The new Vista 3 by Chroma-Q® lighting & media control range made an impressive UK debut on the British Racing Drivers’ Club’s (BRDC) legendary British Grand Prix Party at the Silverstone Circuit.

Attracting high-profile BRDC members and personalities, the Party is staged within the BRDC Farm grounds during the Formula 1® Rolex British Grand Prix weekend.

The Vista 3 software and Vista EX hardware controlled over 160 fixtures lighting a double hospitality marquee, historic car displays, and the grounds of the Farm.

Jack Moorhouse utilised Vista 3’s powerful feature set to unleash his full creativity for the marquee lighting scheme, delivering a relaxed environment during the day, and then transforming it into a lively and vibrant atmosphere at night.

He commented: “I have used Vista 2 on this event in the past and Vista 3 has really improved the looks I am able to create in this type of live show, busking environment. New features like FX masters and window workspaces ensured I had everything I needed right at my fingertips.”

He continued: “Being able to use the Vista EX was great. Space is always tight in these sorts of events, so being able to have lots of physical controls within an ultra-compact footprint was a real bonus.”

Freelance Vista Programmer, Steve Heywood also used Vista 3 to programme the lighting scheme for the Farm grounds and garden, which continued the marquee’s vibrant atmosphere outdoors for guests.

He commented: “I really enjoyed using the new Vista 3 software. With over 100 fixtures to control over the site, the visual layout and easy workflow allowed for quick programming of different looks for every night, even when I couldn’t see all the lights. The new colour engine allowed for accurate colour mixing over the different fixture types, and the FX engine allowed for dynamic looks to be built, bringing the site to life.”
